I had a car that had them pressured on and needed to have a certain machine to get them off. My current car's rotors just slide off with a little help from a hammer. Do the explorers rotors just slide off too?How hard would it be to change front/back rotors on 2002 explorer?
Front rotors have the integral bearing race and removing the spindle nut is necessary.
Rears are tircky becuase you cannot use your Ebrake when working to remove the rears.....EBrake is located at the circumference of the hub assembly....the so rotor is a disc and a drum.....
Tap the rotor while turning and pulling, it should come off....take this time to check the Ebrake drum surface....if it needs turning, get both the disc surface and the drum surface done at the same time.
You should have rotors turned anytime you installed new pads anyway. It helps them last longer and gives you better braking.How hard would it be to change front/back rotors on 2002 explorer?
I know the front have bearings so youll have to unscrew the nut thats under the tin cap. then it just slides off. the rear is probably the same. If its a 4wd then theirs more to it.How hard would it be to change front/back rotors on 2002 explorer?
in most cars you are supposed to be able to replace them with little difficulty.
the only ones that i can think off that would be hard to do would be inboard brakes like on H1 humvees and old jagsHow hard would it be to change front/back rotors on 2002 explorer?
callipers are more difficult to change than rotors on your ford should take some tapping with a hammer
